Save to disc frequency

Question Save to disc frequency
As with any new program that will run all the time I looked at the disk I/O so it doesn't grind down my SSD... well it seems that WhatPulse is a grinder Smile

Right now I see ten 1kb writes per second... guess SQLite likes to write little things often...

Two questions:
1. can the data directory location be configured? (I know I can just hardlink to an HDD dir).
2. can the save frequency/disk activity be reduced?

RE: Save to disc frequency
1. Yep, use portable mode.
2. Nope, it's pretty low as it is.

Yet it's still the top user of I/O when my computer is idle. Why does WhatPulse even need to do something when no input is being tracked (I've disabled uptime and network tracking)?
